Mine is pretty simple... I grew up and moved back three years ago to the town of Tishomingo, Oklahoma. Little town of 3,100 people on the Lake Texoma area (Texas/Oklahoma border). Despite being so small, it's a beautiful place (first capital of the Chickasaw Nation) that has a few celebs living in including Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Randy Rutherford (former NBA) and was the home of Neil Armstrong (the Chicago Bears coach).

Sith, well, it speaks for itself.

I usually use the name "Ryno" on most boards... my nickname in high school (my name is Ryan), but I've been using TishomingoSith lately Smile

Back in 1998, I was 18 and started DJ'ing in college as a freshman. I was trying to think of a DJ name (back then, every DJ needed a sweet name, like DeeJay Vue or some crap like that) and asked my friends for ideas. My real name is Mete, so they suggested using it as an acronym - M.E.T.E.

What were their suggestions for what the acronym stood for?! My Erection Touches Everyone and Milky Enormous Tits...Excellent! Yeah, so I passed on those.

So then I decided to go with something Turkish since that is where I'm from. Naturally TurkishDelight came to mind - but then I found out there was another DJ in my area with the same name. I got all frustrated and picked something stupid - TURKDLIT (basically a poor mans turkish delight). Its been with me ever since...

Yeah, its not that interesting of story...but thanks for letting me share Smile

I have a few names on various boards, but "sith jawa" came from being a Jawa Collector and winning a Sith hat at a local Fan Club event. The name stuck, so I registered with the name here. Also, I have a picture of a Jawa with two red lightsabers kicking some ass to.. Very Happy

When I wanted to register to ebay I was thinking of a username which should sound good or funny or cool or... But unfortunately I wasn't creative enough to find one. So I thought of my real name Patrick and that some friends call me Patte. Patte sounded okay to me and I tried it. But it was already used and I had to go on with thinking about it. As my real name is actually Jan Patrick I decided to recombine Patte and Jan. That's the story of my username pattejan which I used since then on ebay, on the german SW-Forum lichtgeschwindigkeit.de, on RS and finally here on TIG.

I would really have preferred to registered with my real name - Bill McBride, but "Sithtoys" is the name of my site, The Darth Vader Toy Museum
www.Sithtoys.com, and I've used that nick/ID for quite a while so I guess more people might recognize that.

Bill (sithtoys) McBride

I guess I'll play too

On RS site I was Fuzz_Ball just because a long, long time ago that was the first thing that popped in my head when they asked for a name to use on the forum.

When I signed on this Forum I went with Sandcrawler72 to match my eBay name. I live in Arizona so I'm a desert dweller of sorts... It kind'a works for me. I should have stuck with my real name... What's done is done. I guess, I could change it but I'm lazy like that. tongue

My real name is Paul.

As side note, TIG has been great thus far and I like to thank everyone for the warm welcome.


Cheers

Walkie....

I'm a massive fan of the walking dead comic and one of my favourite star wars characters is chewbacca

So I combined the 2..."walking" and "chewie" and got walkie!

When I 1st opened my Ebay account 7 years ago or so my wife and I wanted to think of something unique and easy for me to remember . My wife collects Chickens (mainly roosters) - fake ones by the way , we don't own any real chickens Very Happy . Our house is smaller with a flat roof and it has always reminded me of a chickencoop - it is a nice house , just a bit odd to look at What a Face .
We also love the musician Buckethead and he has a strange chicken fetish - combine that with everything else and Ourchickenshack was born Stormie Smiley

Why Blueberry? I love Belgian comics and there is a famous comic hero : Lt. Blueberry (a cow boy).

since I am portuguese I can tell you that "Danadosparaabrincadeira " means something like "Damned for gaming/fun" in portuguese... Twisted Evil

Have we active Brazilian members on TIG?
